Pill identity of RF 21

I found some other pills in my husband's pocket when he came back from overseas, so I am curious as to what this pill is, marked with 'RF 21'? ## Hello Manana, I was unable able to find a pill that exactly fits your description, but I was able to find a pill with the imprint RF 27 which looks like it could easily be mistaken for a RF 21.

White Pill 303 325

White capslue Pill 303 325 hour glass ## Hi, Kim! Where did you find it? The hourglass logo is used by Ivax Pharmaceuticals, but I am not finding a listing for this anywhere, so I'm wondering if it may be an older medication that is no longer being manufactured. Does anyone else recognize this tablet? I'll keep looking and post back when I have more information for you. ## I believe this capsule 303 325 with what looks like an hour glass is Quinine Sulfate. It probably came out of Mexico. This is the same capsule which came out of Mexico.

I suffer from lyme disease and Babeseosis. I have already reached my limit from the insurance company and the medication will now cost me over 1200.00 per month. Can I get help with the mepron and the azithromycin 250mg tabs 2 per day? ## Mepron contains the active ingredient Atovaquone and is often used with the antibiotic Azithromycin to treat Babesia, when other medications haven't been successful.
